HIV test conclusive ?

Hello dear forum members. First of all thank you for supporting me so far.
Brief history:
Unprotected sex on April 9. Tested ELISA at 65 days 0.03 negative. VDRL and ELISA at 78 days. VDRL non reactive and ELISA 0.02 negative.
But I was taking Norflox and Pyridine during VDRL test so some websites told that it can mask the test.
At 99 days took VDRL, ELISA I & II and HIV Combo test.
I stopped taking Norflox and Pyridine 8 days before test.
Results are VDRL non reactive,
ELISA I & II 0.22 Negative and HIV Combo 0.33 negative.
My questions are,
1)Is the VDRL test conclusive that I don't have syphilis
2) My HIV test index values are changing and increasing with each test . Does that matter and alarming.?
3) Can I be sure that I'm free from HIV and move on? Is a 6 months test required again?

Thank you members. Kindly help me.

3. Tested ELISA at 65 days and you only needed to wait 4 weeks for this HIV test so you are conclusively negative. 3 month testing is very outdated guideline so 6 is super outdated.
2. Since you are conclusively negative there is no purpose wondering why the test values are changing.
